  • You can’t beat the scenery and the views. We saw lots of wildlife on the way up the mountain, including elk and bison. Great place to visit when it’s warmer.  more »
  • The views from Lookout Mountain are amazing! Worth the drive to the top. You get a great view of the mountains and can also see Golden and even downtown Denver on a clear day. Our driver on the Coors ...  more »
  • It takes about 15 minutes to travel to the top from Golden below. Many travel on foot or bike so be very careful of both. The view on a clear day is amazing as well as Buffalo Bill's museum.  more »

  • Its a beautiful place to hike, and if your too lazy you can drive back and enjoy the view. The only bad things is that there so many cops they look like an ant farm from a distance.
  • Great place in the foot hills to view the mountain ranges as well as the mesa. You can see Golden and downtown Denver in the distance. Buffalo Bill's grave site an added note. We did not visit the museum.
  • Amazing views! Saw the 4th of July fireworks here. It was so cool to see the whole area’s fireworks. There are people that live up by the lookout, so be respectful of them!
  • Beautiful views, as well as an educational visitor's center for the kids. Clean bathrooms and water refill stations. Easy hikes for kids of all ages.
  • This place was awesome!! Went to do some self-reflection and just the right place.
